MACLAB (Mechatronics and Automatic Control Laboratory) has been established in 2001 with the goal of supporting research activities in the area of automatic control of electro-mechanical systems. In particular the primary areas of interest include embedded control systems, distributed control and sensing architectures for robots. The experimental activity at MACLAB is focused on the study of distributed control architectures based on field-bus networks and microcontroller-based computers. Current application targets are robotic systems and technologies for humanoid robots and man-robot interaction.
